THE LAW OF GOD – The Seventh Commandment

CONFESSION OF SIN [Based upon The Book of Common Worship, 1st order]
Most holy and merciful Father, we acknowledge and confess before You our sinful nature, prone to evil and slow in good, and all our shortcomings and offenses. You alone know how often we have sinned-- in wandering from Your ways, in wasting Your gifts, in forgetting Your love. O Lord, have mercy on us. We are ashamed and sorry for everything in which we have displeased you. Teach us to hate our errors. Cleanse us from our secret faults, and forgive our sins for the sake of your dear Son. And O most holy and loving Father, help us, we ask You, to live in Your light and walk in Your ways, according to the commandments of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Q: What is your only comfort in life and death?
A: That I am not my own, but belong with body and soul, both in life and in death, to my faithful Savior Jesus Christ. He has fully paid for all my sins with His precious blood, and has set me free from all the power of the devil. He also preserves me in such a way that without the will of my heavenly Father not a hair can fall from my head; indeed, all things must work together for my salvation. Therefore, by His Holy Spirit He also assures me of eternal life and makes me heartily willing and ready from now on to live for Him.

CONFESSION OF SIN [Adapted from the Book of Common Worship]
Almighty God, You are rich in mercy to all those who call upon You. Hear us as we come to You humbly confessing our sins and transgressions, and imploring Your mercy and forgiveness. We have broken Your holy laws by our deeds and by our words, and by the sinful affections of our hearts. We confess before You our disobedience and ingratitude, our pride and willfulness; and all our failures and shortcomings toward You and toward our fellow men. Have mercy upon us, most merciful Father; And by Your great goodness grant that we may hereafter serve and please You in newness of life; through the merit and mediation of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

THE LAW OF GOD – The Fifth Commandment

CONFESSION OF SIN [Based upon The Valley of Vision]
Eternal Father, You are good beyond all thought, but we are vile, wretched, miserable, blind; Our lips are ready to confess, but our hearts are slow to feel and our ways reluctant to amend. We bring our souls to you. Break them, wound them, bend them, mold them. Unmask to us sin's deformity, that we may hate it, abhor it, flee from it. Our abilities have been weapons of revolt against you; as rebels we have misused our strength, and served the foul adversary of your kingdom. Give us grace to bewail our senseless folly; Grant us to know that the way of transgression is hard; that evil paths are wretched paths; that to depart from you is to lose all good. We have seen the purity and beauty of your perfect law, the happiness of those in whose heart it reigns, the calm dignity of the walk to which it calls; yet daily we violate and condemn its precepts. All these sins we mourn, lament, and for them cry, "Pardon." Work in us more profound and abiding repentance; Give us the fullness of a godly grief which is ever powerful, and ever confident; Grant that our repentance will enable us to see more clearly the brightness and glory of the cross of Jesus Christ, in whose name we pray. Amen.

THE LAW OF GOD – The Fourth Commandment

CONFESSION OF SIN [Adapted from Matthew Henry]
We have sinned against you, O Lord, our Maker, our Defender, and our Redeemer. Our natures are corrupt and sinful; prone to fall away from you, sluggish to do good and swift to do evil. Vain thoughts have come upon us and found lodging within us, defiling and disquieting our minds, and keeping out good thoughts. We have burdened ourselves with that care which you have commanded us to cast upon you. We have failed in our duties one to another, and have provoked one another as much to folly and anger as to love and good works. We have been cold in our love to you, weak in our desires toward you, unsteady in our walking with you, and are even at this time poorly prepared to serve you. We beseech you--Forgive all our sins, for Christ’s sake, and be at peace with us in Him Who died to make peace and lives to make intercession for us. Amen.

CONFESSION OF SIN [Based upon Romans 1 and Romans 5]
Our great and everlasting God, Whose eternal power and divine nature have been seen through the things You have made; we acknowledge that we are without excuse. For although we have known You, we have not honored you as God nor given you thanks, but we have become futile in our thinking; and our senseless minds have been darkened. Claiming to be wise, we have become fools. We have been filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, covetousness, and malice. Full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, and craftiness, we are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, rebellious toward parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Yet we do also heartily acknowledge, that when we were weak, at the right time, Christ died for the ungodly. We most joyfully confess that You have proven your love for us in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Forgive our sins, we pray, through Him who was handed over to death for our trespasses and was raised for our justification. Amen.

THE LAW OF GOD – First Commandment

CONFESSION OF SIN [Adapted from CRC Book of Praise]
O eternal God and merciful Father, we humble ourselves before your great majesty, against which we have frequently and grievously sinned. We acknowledge that we deserve nothing less than eternal death, that we are unclean before you and children of wrath. We continually transgress your commandments, failing to do what you have commanded, and doing that which you have expressly forbidden. We acknowledge our waywardness, and are heartily sorry for all our sins. We are not worthy to be called your children, nor to lift up our eyes heavenward to you in prayer. Nevertheless, O Lord God and gracious Father, we know that your mercy toward those who turn to you is infinite; and so we take courage to call upon you, trusting in our Mediator Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. Forgive all our sins for Christ’s sake. Cover us with his innocence and righteousness, for the glory of your name. Deliver our understanding from all blindness, and our hearts from all willfulness and rebellion, we pray through Jesus Christ, our Redeemer. Amen.

*CONFESSION OF FAITH Heidelberg Catechism Question 1
Q: What is your only comfort in life and death?
A: That I am not my own, but belong with body and soul, both in life and in death, to my faithful Savior Jesus Christ. He has fully paid for all my sins with His precious blood, and has set me free from all the power of the devil. He also preserves me in such a way that without the will of my heavenly Father not a hair can fall from my head; indeed, all things must work together for my salvation. Therefore, by His Holy Spirit He also assures me of eternal life and makes me heartily willing and ready from now on to live for Him.
